Everton Football Club are and English soccer team who play in the Premier League from their Goodison Park stadium in Liverpool. Referred to as the blue half of Liverpool, Everton are one of English soccer’s most famous clubs, one that enjoyed huge success in the mid-1980s that included two league titles, an FA Cup, and the European Cup Winners’ Cup. Everton last won a trophy in 1995 when they defeated Manchester United in the FA Cup final courtesy of a Paul Rideout goal.
In the last nine seasons, Everton have finish in the top six on six occasions, but the 2015-16 campaign saw them finish in a disappointing 11th place, which ultimately cost Roberto Martinez his job as manager.
Everton have since replaced Martinez with Ronald Koeman, formerly of Southampton, a signing seen as a major coup for “The Toffees.” The club has also captured Steve Walsh from Leicester City’s title winning backroom staff.
While these are major positive steps for Everton, there are doubts surrounding John Stones and Romelu Lukaku. The former is being linked with a £50 million moves, while the latter struggled for form late last season, and has not made it a secret that he would like to leave.
If Stones and Lukaku do leave Everton, it could be a transitional period for the club, but if they stay and Koeman gets the best out of them, Everton could be the dark horses of the Premier League in 2016-17.

With odds of +8000 to win the league, Everton are ninth favorites. The odds are probably accurate because Everton are highly unlikely to be challenging for top honors this season, but a -250 chance of a top half finish looks a good bet.
If Ronald Koeman can keep his best players, and sign some of his own, the +500 on an Everton top six finish is not out of the realms of possibility, but Koeman also needs t iron out the inconsistencies Everton showed in 2015-16.
Everton finished the season unbeaten at home in three, but they lost their last three away games and are without a win on the road in six games.
Defensively, Everton were 14th in the Premier League last season after conceding 55 goals, a figure that could increase if John Stones leaves, but could also shrink once Koeman instils his structure to his defenders.
Attacking, Everton were seventh in the league (third when at home) with 59 goals. Again, this could increase if Romelu Lukaku stays and finds his scoring boots once more; Lukaku is the +1200 fourth favorite to top the goal scoring charts in 2016-17.
Everton games seem to produce goals, 114 of them in 2015-16, ranking their games second in the Premier League. The over 2.5 goals market was trigger 22 times from 38 games, for the record.
